Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol:
December 5-7 and 12-14, 2014
Charles Kopack directed the comedy, which portrays Jacob Marley’s back-story, leading up to his posthumous visit with Scrooge on Christmas Eve.
THE STORY: "Marley was dead, to begin with…"—and what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge's mean, sour, pruney old business partner after that? Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He's even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys her work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge's heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley—in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story—discovers his own.
